Many Extras Expected to be Used in ‘Grown Ups 2′ and More Location Info!
A location manager for Columbia Pictures says about half of the Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups 2 is planned to be filmed in Swampscott and about half in Marblehead.
The manager, Charles Harrington, who spoke to the Swampscott School Committee Wednesday, also urged interested Swampscott residents to attend the open casting call for extras being held this weekend in Boston.
br>There are many extras being used in the film, he said. Filming will take place for much of the summer.
He said in an interview that movie producers want Grown Ups 2 to be an exciting experience for people in town and having a role as an extra would be a great way to be part of the experience.
The location manager told School Committee members that there will not be as much filming as expected at the Swampscott Middle School.
Instead of four days the filming at the school has been trimmed to a single day, he said.
A history classroom will be transformed to a French class.
The shoot will take place on June 4 in the school’s Grade 5 wing.
As it happens, the school’s sixth graders will be on a field trip that day and the fifth graders will be moved to the school’s sixth grade wing to minimize any disruptions to education, Superintendent Lynne Celli said.
